Cash for Clothes Fundraiser - HMS PTA
As you may know, all the schools in our area are short of funds and Hexham Middle is no exception. You can help by donating any old or unwanted clothes.
Simply drop off any good quality unwanted clothes or accessories to the Cash for Clothes shop in Hexham and mention that your donation is on behalf of Hexham Middle School. For every 1kg received, Cash for Clothes will pay 40p to HMS PTA through an account.
The shop is situated on Maidens Walk opposite Marks & Spencer. If you are unable to take clothes to the shop, your child can take small bags directly to school where they will be held in Orchard Block before being collected and taken to the shop for donation.
For more information, please see the flyer from HMS PTA.

Pea, Parsley and Parmesan Risotto by Daniel Giuliani
Before the Easter holidays HMS pupils had the opportunity to enter the Young Pea Chef of the Year Competition 2017, sponsored by Waitrose and Pro Cook.
Last week we received good news that Daniel Giuliani in Year 7 has been selected as a finalist. The expert panel of judges which included TV chef Rachel Green and experts from The British Growers Association, Fen Peas, Waitrose and Pro Cook were really impressed by Daniel’s Pea, Parsley and Parmesan Risotto.
They received hundreds of creative pea-inspired recipes from budding young chefs across the country and Daniel’s has made the final five in the secondary school category.
